Glen Campbell, in his autobio out next month, says fighting was such a force in his year-long "drinking and drugging" liaison with Tanya Tucker that: "We even fought during sex once or twice. " In Rhinestone Cowboy, the singer calls their thing 13 years ago - when he was 42 and she was 21 - "a poisoned relationship. " He calls Tucker "a crazy woman . . . (with) the nerve and strength to fight a chain saw. Too often, she viewed me as the saw. " Tucker called Campbell's "obligation to set the record straight . . . admirable," but added: "Should my memoirs ever be written, they will offer a different perspective.

NEW YORK - Country-music luminary Glen Campbell has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and plans to put out his final album this summer. Campbell's representative Bobbie Gale made the announcement yesterday. He said the disease was in its early stages. The 75-year-old's wife, Kim, also talked with People magazine and said she and her husband wanted to go public with Campbell's illness so fans would know the reason if he manifests any trouble onstage. Campbell's CD "Ghost on the Canvas" is scheduled for release Aug. 30. He also is set to go on the road on what was already titled "The Glen Campbell Goodbye Tour.

BILOXI, Miss. - Glen Campbell is having a great time. Make no mistake, it is tragic that Alzheimer's disease is slowly stripping away the memories and abilities that define one of music's greats. But day to day, surrounded by family and friends, encouraged to play his guitar and sing and golf and joke, Campbell, 75, is often smiling. "I'm really not worried about anything," he said. "You know those people who say, 'Oh, geez, I wonder what's going to happen tomorrow?' Tomorrow's cool.

In June, Glen Campbell announced that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, and that his new album, Ghost on the Canvas , would be his last. The legendary session man had played on 1960s recordings with Frank Sinatra, the Beach Boys, and Elvis Presley before going on to a hit-heavy solo career. But thanks in part to songs written for him by younger artists such as Jakob Dylan and by the Replacements' Paul Westerberg, Ghost on the Canvas finds Campbell, 75, facing down mortality with a gravitas that might surprise anyone who's familiar with the singer and guitarist from "Rhinestone Cowboy" or his 1969 TV show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour . On Thursday, Campbell came to the Irvine Auditorium at the University of Pennsylvania on one of the first dates of what's being billed as his "Goodbye Tour.

Jon Regen He's a pianist who gained his chops in jazz, but Jon Regen has developed into even more. On his suave and soulful new album, Revolution, you can still hear some of the jazz background, but mostly what you hear is someone who has developed into a supremely accomplished pop artist. Think Harry Connick Jr., or maybe Billy Joel without the bombast - except the New York-based Regen carves out his own niche as both a writer and singer. He moves effortlessly from the rock-edged "Fighting for Your Love" to the insistently catchy "She's Not You (But Tonight She'll Have to Do")
